Recent pioneering research has shown that music can modulate neural systems like the dopamine response, autonomic nervous system, and others related to stress, movement, learning and memory. This research shows that music affects the same neural pathways that are regulated by pharmaceuticals such as psychostimulants and other drugs. Building on these latest scientific advances, the Sync Project aims to develop music as a personalized therapeutic for a variety of conditions including Parkinson’s, pain, sleep disorders, fatigue, stroke recovery, anxiety and athletic performance.
We’re thrilled to announce that Dame Marjorie Scardino is joining The Sync Project Board. Marjorie is a tremendous addition to our board, bringing with her a wealth of proven business and leadership experience as well as a knowledge and deep interest in using technology to make learning and learning problems more individualized.
Dame Marjorie Scardino served as Chief Executive of The Economist for 12 years and then Pearson plc, the world's leading education company, for 16 years. She is currently chairman of The MacArthur Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in the United States, as well as a member of non-profit boards including The Royal College of Art and The Carter Center, and for-profit boards including Twitter and PureTech Health.
